Divine Strake CANCELLED!

You may remember a few months back that this blog participated in a "Blogswarm" on the issue of the Divine Strake bomb. Plans were to explode a huge bomb in the NV desert to help design "bunker buster" nukes. Greens and others across the nation fought and they backed off the test.

Well, now it's been cancelled. From a mailing list I participate in on anti-nuke issues:
"Divine Strake," the proposed conventional explosion that would have simulated a nuclear weapon and spewed radioactive debris into the atmosphere, has been canceled! The test was slated for the Nevada Test Site this summer. Read the press release from the Defense Department. After months of public outcry from concerned citizens and members of Congress, the Pentagon has agreed to cancel the test. FCNL (Friends Committee on National Legislation, the Quakers) constituents sent hundreds of emails to the federal government and members of Congress opposing the test. They were joined by thousands of other concerned citizens and our voices were heard! Congratulations on a small victory. Lets keep up the good work.
